An online cancer centre, which was launched a month ago by Doctors.net.uk, has already been used by 51% of all UK oncologists.
A total of 633 oncologists have accessed the ‘Cancer Insight Centre’ (CIC), with medical conference highlights currently the most popular area.
CIC has also been attracting strong, unprompted interest from GPs and haematologists, with many hundreds accessing the specialist resource.
Dr Tim Ringrose, Medical Director of Doctors.net.uk, said: “The Cancer Insight Centre fulfils a clear need for up-to-the-minute educational resources that enable oncologists and other medical professionals to learn and collaborate with each other in a secure, professional online environment.
“We are delighted that the resources have already proved so popular among medical professionals, particularly oncologists, and we believe that they will continue to provide an invaluable source of information and support.”
The Centre provides a range of information, including insights into the impact of developments in global cancer research. It also provides access to advice from specialist oncology advisers and a secure online forum where doctors can share information.
